We live in the arse end of nowhere. DH has been into the city for a work event. Unfortunately it over ran. He now can't make his train connection to get home and needs collecting from the station where he normally changes to the local service.

This means I will miss The Eurovision Song Contest. AIBU if I leave him to walk home? It should only take him around 5 or 6 hours, down unlit lanes through pit black forest.

Of course YANBU, Eurovision is sacred and only once a year. He must learn a valuable lesson

Can he not rustle up a primitive shelter in the forest and camp. Then you can pick him up in the morning.

Win-win grin

If it was my dh I'd pick him up no problem! Yabu

He's a bit worried about the wolves in the forest (we're not in the UK). I think this will help motivate him to walk quicker.

Id pick him up for one reason....

I would rather miss the Eurovision than deal with the moaning and sulking that will happen if I didn't. My dh can sulk for England

I can see why people have to put " light hearted" in titles now grin

YANBU. Nothing comes before Eurovision. In fact, given that your DH prioritised work over Eurovision, you should probably LTB.

Eurovision is an annual event so that should be your priority.

I think there are only 3 possible solutions
1. LTB
2.teach him a very valuable lesson and make him walk home
3. Let the wolves eat him (this has the added bonus on no sulking or moaning )

I think you need to compromise. If he makes it through the forest alive you'll come pick him up

almostthirty Sat 14-May-16 19:11:26

But only if he brings wine and snacks foolme

LittleMissBossyBoots Sat 14-May-16 19:15:23

He was supposed to buy the snacks on the way home so either way Eurovision is ruined.

Do wolves like pick'n'mix?

DoomGloomAndKaboom Sat 14-May-16 19:17:03


he can stay in the station over night on a bench
or huddle up with the pigeons/penguins/buzzards/emus/pterosaurs (I don't know where you live, delete as applicable for your locale)

PS if you make him walk home, check his life insurance for one of those 'you get nada if you're dumb enough to be eaten by wolves' clauses.

PPS is he red riding hood?

I'm with almostthirty LTB how dare he make you miss Eurovision Song Contest. is he out of his mind. I came back from the baby show early so I was able to watch it.

Count yourself lucky you have a husband! And a television! And pic n mix!

DoomGloomAndKaboom Sat 14-May-16 19:19:59

Do wolves like pick'n'mix?

No, they only like grannies. And little pigs.

He's probably safe. Unless he's in a long frilly nightie or a Peppa Pig costume.

UnityBlottisaTosser Sat 14-May-16 19:20:35

I don't think that humans are all that tasty for wolves, so they'd probably just maul him a bit. (Or am I confusing them with sharks? Or Orcas?)

Helmetbymidnight Sat 14-May-16 19:20:50

shock does he expect you to 'save all your kisses for him?'

(Ok it needs some work but...)

53rdAndBird Sat 14-May-16 19:21:48

YANBU. The wolves will all be inside watching Eurovision anyway, he'll be fine.

coldcanary Sat 14-May-16 19:22:04

YANBU. It's Eurovision fgs! I'm sure he'll understand.
Where do you live that makes wolves a genuine worry if you don't mind me asking?

Will your Love Shine A Light for him?

APlaceOnTheCouch Sat 14-May-16 19:26:12

Tell him to stay in the city but arrange a takeaway delivery of snacks for you. win/win

PaulAnkaTheDog Sat 14-May-16 19:26:28

I lost a dear relative in a freak wolf attack after he missed his train on the night of Eurovision a few years ago. Your thread is an insult to everyone who has ever gone through such an event.

Then your canine related nn is also highly insensitive paul!
